Have you always dreamed of jetting off on a luxury holiday? After all, it’s the perfect time to spoil yourself with some extravagance.
Here we share a few ideas, to see you spend your next trip in the lap of luxury.
First class flights
Kick your holiday off in style by treating yourself to an upgrade on your flight. It all starts with the airport where you’ll be able to fast track the queues and head straight to the luxury of the airport lounge after checking in. Once on-board, you can enjoy all the comforts of first class travel, from being waited on hand and foot to en-suite bathrooms and the finest dining.
Wherever you rest your head at night, you better make sure it’s worthy. It’s so important to be able to catch up on your beauty sleep in style, in order to enjoy the excitement of each day on your holiday. Treat yourself to some five-star opulence and you certainly won’t regret it! Head to the Luxury Hotels Group to browse their indulgent selection.
When it comes to shopping in style, there are a few places that the well-heeled of the world will head to every time. Think LA’s Rodeo Drive or New York’s Fifth Avenue, London’s New Bond Street or the Avenue Montaigne in Paris and you’ll soon be rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous. Even window shopping on these streets paved with gold will make you feel glamorous!
Tantalise your tastebuds with some seriously Michelin starred dining on your next holiday. Head to Nobu in Doha, home to the 'man who reinvented Japanese food’, or to T’ang Court in Hong Kong – the only restaurant to make it to the coveted three-star Michelin status. If you’re serious about a slice of luxury dining, remember that you’ll probably need to book a table in advance at your restaurant – so don’t risk being left disappointed!
Of course, for real decadence you could sit back and let someone do all of the hard work for you – by treating yourself to the luxury of an all-inclusive retreat. Picture enjoying an ice cold cocktail whilst lounging by the pool, before spending your evening indulging in a candlelit three course meal and you’ll be on the right track. If all out glamour sounds right up your street, take a look at Inspired Luxury Escapes and Virgin Holidays for some inspiration.
One thing’s for sure: if you’re going to go all out on a luxurious holiday, you’ll need to have your currency sorted before you go.
